Trying to travel with only a carry-on presents one major problem: if you want to bring along things like gorgeous boots with very large heels and oversized knit sweaters, it kind of behooves you to wear these items while actually traveling, so as to leave a little space in your luggage for stuff like... toothbrushes.
That’s OK, though: these particular heels, sky-high though they may be, also happen to be pretty comfortable and relatively easy to remove in the security line (no laces or zippers). And that sweater? With sleeves that enormous, all you have to do is rest your head on a forearm, and it’s like you brought along a built-in pillow.
My other go-to pieces for last Sunday’s flight: stretchy jeans, a cozy scarf, and simple accessories, like Timex’s Easy Reader with a black silicone strap, my favorite necklaces, and a wristful of silver bangles that I knew would take me through the entire trip.
On me: Timex Easy Reader Silicone Strap Watch, Free People sweater, jeans via TJ Maxx, Nine West boots, Hannah Warner necklaces, LyraLoveStar moon ring, H&M scarf, GUESS by Marciano sunglasses, J. Crew Edie purse, chloe + isabel silver bangles.
